SMA Versascan

A Revolutionary Large Format Flatbed Scanner

A large format flatbed scanner with new technology allowing structured surfaces such as wood, rubber, plastic, fabrics, carpet and many more types of material to be digitised.

Light reflecting items such as coins, seals and metal prints can be captured at the highest quality on the large format flatbed scanner. The V3D technology presents new opportunities as it can be applied to materials outside the normal archive and library world.

      About

      What is Visual 3D Scanning?

      Visual 3D is a newly designed scanning technology that produces results that look like 3D. The process is bases on different lighting scenarios where the same area is being captured with several different lighting angles on the fly. The software then combines the separate images into one image.

      As a result V3D images offer perfect reproductions of nearly any structured surface. In addition it increased the depth of field significantly. This approach is unique and raises the outstanding image quality of the SMA large format flatbed scanner to another level.

      Significantly higher scan speeds

      SMA scanners were designed for applications where speed is an issue. The utilized scanning and interface technology
      guarantees the highest possible productivity. Further, the capability of scanning bidirectionally cuts the mechanical impact in half
      and increases the productivity further. It doesn't get any faster than that! With the new release of our GENERATION 5 scanners
      the scan speed has increased its performance by 100% so our scanners are now twice as fast!

      Total Convenience

      Operating SMA flatbed scanners is as easy as operating a photo copier. Open the lid, place the document, close the lid and hit
      the scan button – that's it! Alternatively the scanner can conveniently be operated via foot switch. Same applies for our book
      scanners. Simply place the book and hit the scan button. The rest of the process is fully automatic. All the operator has to do is to
      flip the page and release the scan. All SMA scanners are equipped with a special LED light illuminator that does not produce any
      ultraviolet or infrared radiation. Harmless and uniform illumination is guaranteed. The illuminator of all SMA scanners is located
      inside the scan head and is simply moved across the original. As a result all SMA scanners can be operated independent from
      ambient light and do not irritate the operator's eyes.

      Large format flatbed scanner sizes

      SMA is the only company in the world that offers a large format flatbed scanner varying from A1+ to double A0+ as well as a line of manual and robotic book scanners.

      Versascan 2550: 1270 x 635 (25 x 50 inch)

      Versascan 3650: 1270 x 915mm (36 x 50 inch)

      Versascan 36100: 2540 x 915mm (36 x 100 inch)

      Versascan 4870: 1778 x 1219mm (70 x 48 inch)

      The large format flatbed scanner is suitable for scanning large and fragile originals that do not require a book cradle or cannot be handled by a feeder. Due to its newly designed rollaway mount it is easy to move the scanners around – regardless of its size. Simply unlock the large format flatbed scanner, fold it up and off you go. Alternatively a motorised height adjustment is available in order to accommodate users of different sizes.
